All parts of the Echinacea plant may be used to make Echinacea products - root, leaves, and flower. Echinacea is sometimes made into juice, tea and even tablets.
Echinacea isn't something your body needs every day, but it's a great supplement to have on hand for those days when your body is put under a lot of stress.
Didn't get enough sleep? Work, school or family stressing you out to the max? Pushing the intensity in the gym? Using Echinacea supplementation at these times may help your body maintain its ability to fight back against stresses and stay healthy.*
You can buy Echinacea as a standalone product. Echinacea is also included as an ingredient in some multivitamins, immune support products, and cleanse/detoxification products.
The recommended dosage of Echinacea is 200 to 400 milligrams two to three times per day during times of high stress. You can take it alone or in combination with other immune supporting herbs.
